Abstract

Studies of sediment connectivity are beginning to yield new insights into the dynamics of dryland rivers, and in particular the role of vegetation in reducing the connectivity of sediment transfers downstream. Detailed surveying at monitored sites such as is being carried out within the EU-funded project RECONDES (Conditions for Restoration and Mitigation of Desertified Areas in Southern Europe Using Vegetation) is required to study the interactions between vegetation, sediment and flow in dryland rivers of the Mediterranean region
